MA are Republicans, NA are Democrats, you can debate that, but not really. I don't believe this was unintentional.
Financially advanced (Iron-man, Wonder-man, Wasp) or Militarily leaning characters ( Ms Marvel, Black Widow, Ares) and weak-minded (Yellowjacket, Sentry)(this may raise some hackles) not to mention most powerful- Republican
Weaker group, looking out for the most vulnerable of citizens (Cap, Spiderman, Wolverine, Cage, Doc Strange, Hawkeye, Iron Fist, Echo, or Daredevil) underdogs all. Not sure about Spiderwoman.-Democrat

Corporate vs. man on the street.

Republicans won the Civil War battle. Dems will win the final battle and ultimately the war-shortly before the '08 elections.

Is this orchestrated?

.. aside from the Republican or Democrat thing (politics is bigger than two very similar parties), the general idea is on the mark. It makes sense.. peoples social/class status affects their politics. Aside from Bishop (who is a cop) most black and Latino characters were against registration.
the actions of the New Avengers are to out their for the Democrats... it more like Iron Man is the republican who pushes a right wing agenda... Warbird the Democrat who goes along with it even if ostensibly she should be against it, and the New Avengers are any one of the radical social movements who are too 'out their' for either conservative party.
